    A friend of the family shared this recipe several years ago. These rolls are very impressive and look like you have worked hard...only the cook knows. Prep/cooking time does not include rise time.

      Great rolls! I make crescent rolls as part of our Thanksgiving and Easter meals each year. I had settled on a favorite recipe several years ago and had been making it since, but decided to try a new one this past Easter. I think I made a good choice with this one. :) I always make the rolls ahead of time, underbake them just a bit, then reheat in the oven right before serving. And I always brush them with melted butter as soon as they come out of the oven (I think that's crucial :) ). Anyway, my Easter crowd loved these--thanks for posting the recipe!

      Just made this recipe tonight they were GREAT! But I didn't use them as rolls... I made pizza pockets and my kids LOVED them. My son who is a picky eater and is also hard to get to eat an entire "his size" meal, ate a whole one about the size of a hot pocket from the store. We like them so much I think we will make pigs in a blanket tomorrow night. Thank you for posting!
